I have an 8 year old Polar F1 that still works, but the transmitter belt has finally deteriorated (the plastic ends broke through). This FT1 is very similar, but the watch band looks suspect. I just received this, have used it two days and am concerned the "gel-rubber" band may not last. I will update over time. The one-button entries have a short learning curve and you won't regret the simplicity. After entering execute (start) you merely swipe your wrist past the chest sensor to toggle between heart rate, elapsed time and actual clock time. No buttons to push while working out! This is basic; no upload or tracking, but gives you right-now feedback of your workout intensity. The LARGE font is easy on these 60 YO eyes and preferable (to me) over the FT4/7 Polar's watch face and font size. The band is the only reason to not give it 5 stars.

I bought this to use in our clinic to monitor heart rates of my clients, you have to hold it right next to their chest to get it to switch from HR to how long they are exercising. I had a different model before, but it stopped working, so I bought this one. I will be returning it and getting the one with multiple buttons, much easier to use

I'm confused

By

Comments about Polar FT1 Unisex Heart Rate Monitor:

I just purchased the FT1. The instructions are absolutely horrible!! The salesperson told me you can use your age to determine your target heart rate, but that's not hte case. I'm returning it tomorrow.

Junk

By 

from IL

Comments about Polar FT1 Unisex Heart Rate Monitor:

I have always been thrilled with my Polars, last one stopped working and could no longer change the battery for some reason. Purchased this in January and today, 3 months later it doesn't work, transmitter strap not reading hr even after wetting the strap again. Save your money,

Good value, entry level device

By

Comments about Polar FT1 Unisex Heart Rate Monitor:

It's a good value, does the few things it does well. A good choice for a first heart rate monitor while you're deciding how much money to invest. The official battery replacement method is going to cost you as much as a whole new unit, so consider it disposable after a year or two of use. There are videos on replacing the battery yourself, but it may ruin the waterproofing and will definitely void the warranty.

Simple/Reliable

By 

from San Diego, CA, United States

Comments about Polar FT1 Unisex Heart Rate Monitor:

At this point the FT1 is one of the oldest monitors still available from Polar - so yes, the battery IS NOT USER-REPLACEABLE, but it's still a great unit. It has a one-button operation that takes some getting use to and once you start it up you get only one screen - heart rate in bpm. It's not a bad monitor, it's just simple and a bit dated at this point. With that said it isn't advertised as being anything but. Unless you can find one for $20-30 and your on a tight budget, I'd steer you toward the FT4/7.

Little help

By

Comments about Polar FT1 Unisex Heart Rate Monitor:

Bought this a month ago to replace an FT4 that was not working anymore. A waste of money. This monitor does virtually nothing except show your real time heart rate.

OK for what I need

By 

from Ohio, United States

Comments about Polar FT1 Unisex Heart Rate Monitor:

I've had mine for about three years. I didn't need anything fancy. I have a bike computer and all that - I just needed a heart rate monitor. It's simple to use, which I like, but I think the battery in the chest piece is beginning to peter out. It doesn't start detecting my heartbeat as readily as it did in the past. I will probably replace it with something that will communicate with my iPhone for MapMyRide.

Does One Thing Well!!!

By 

from Reno, NV, United States

Comments about Polar FT1 Unisex Heart Rate Monitor:

I want my heart rate monitor to do just one thing and do it well...measure my heart rate! This does that very well. I don't need all sorts of special programs or settings, just like it simple. Suggest using conduction jell such as Bubump on HR sensor pads and this will solve consistency issues.

Hard to start

By 

from Hampton

Comments about Polar FT1 Unisex Heart Rate Monitor:

I bought this heart rate monitor just to watch my heart rate but it takes 5-10 minutes to get it started. I still haven't figured it out. The single button actually makes it harder to operate. Recommend spending more money for a watch that has multiple buttons.
